Mercedes-Benz officially introduced the hybrids of the C-and E-classOctober 11, 2018
Mercedes-Benz C-class with a flow rate of 1.6 liters per 100km? – Maybe! The German company introduced new third-generation hybrid systems for its own models of C and E class. However, the practicality of cars decreased slightly.
Electrification of modern cars is in full swing. And more and more models are becoming hybrids, combining in themselves the advantages of both ICE and electric motors. The German concern Mercedes-Benz has introduced a new line of hybrid systems for the C-and E-class. The declared fuel consumption in mixed mode can be as low as 1.6 liters per 100 km of track.
As it turned out, there were a total of two systems, with petrol and diesel engines. Both power units are paired with the same Bosch electric motor integrated into the new 9-speed automatic transmission – 9G-Tronic. The declared power of the electrical component is 122 horsepower and 440 Nm of torque.
The gasoline hybrid is built on the basis of a two-liter turbo engine with a power of up to 211 horsepower. This motor is not used for the first time by Mercedes as part of a hybrid installation. But thanks to the improvement of the design and the new electric motor, the total power increased to 320 forces and 700 Nm of torque. This system will be designed exclusively for the E-class 300 e model line.
According to official information, the E 300 e will be able to accelerate to the first 100 km/h in just 5.7 seconds. Fuel consumption will be only 2 liters per 100 km in mixed mode.
The diesel version of the system has similar characteristics. The engine develops up to 194 horsepower and 400 Nm of torque. The total power will be 306 forces and 700 Nm of torque. But there is a loophole for automotive enthusiasts – installation capacity is limited by electronics.
The hybrid diesel engine will be designed for C-and E-Class models. The declared fuel consumption can reach a minimum value of 1.6 liters per 100 km. Moreover, the optional fuel tank of 60 liters is able to provide mileage of up to 1,000 km.
The Mercedes-Benz C 300 de will be able to accelerate to 100 km / h in just 5.6 seconds, and the E 300 de sedan will gain the first hundred in 5.9 seconds.
Another feature of the models will be the company assistant ECO Assist. Able to analyze road traffic, a planned route and offer the best driving style and driving mode for maximum efficiency. Four preset operating modes are available for the transmission: Hybrid and E-Mode (driving only on electric), as well as E-Save, in which the electronics maintain a given battery charge level, and Charge mode designed to recharge the battery from the internal combustion engine and using recuperation systems.
A 13.5 kW*hour battery is used as a power source. This provides cars with up to 57 km of run exclusively on electric, with a maximum speed of up to 130 km / h. The battery charge can be recharged in 1.5 hours, subject to the use of proprietary charging. From the network, the car will charge about 5 hours.
On sale models will appear in the summer of 2019. Cost is still unknown.
